Dates of existence



The Centre for Human Settlements was established at the University of British Columbia during the United Nations Conference of Human Settlements in Vancouver (May 1976). Administered by a director responsible to an inter-disciplinary Board of Management chaired by the Dean of Graduate Studies, the Centre was created to provide a research focus for issues relating to human settlement. One of the centre's main objectives was the provision of access to the audio-visual reference library of video tapes of the 240 presentations contributed by 140 nations participating in the 1976 conference.
